  • Visitor Information

On Thursday lunchtimes KERB street food market brings eight traders to the forecourt of the Gherkin. The regularly changing rota includes the likes of Mother Clucker serving strips of tea brined, buttermilk dredged fried breast strips with hot sauce and lime mayo as well as cajun skinny fries tossed in spices. Choose from seafood paella, Bill or Beak burgers, Steakhaus or rice noodle pots from Hanoi Kitchen, depending on who's there that week. Get there as close to 12 as you can - it gets busy and they can sell out. Once it's gone, it's gone.
